Step right up
I started this shop as a place to show some of my work ,as I tend to be reclusive and secretive about it. Social media did wonders for me and millions of introverts and when it became too crowded I quit that too.
I met great people on Etsy in the old, old times and forged friendships that I hope will last a lifetime.
I wish I could say this shop is a business but it's more like an extension of my studio. If I like you I might drag you in and give you cup after cup of strong drinks and ask all kinds of things about your life.

Usually the work is insured in case of damage , you will need to file a claim with the post office and present the broken items and packaging.
If the work is not insured send me a pic of the broken piece and you will receive store credit for the value of it minus shipping.
Taxes and duty fees are the buyer's responsibility.
If requested on larger orders I will give an exact quote to all my international customers .
I ship all items under 2 kg (4 lb) USPS first class international.There is no insurance option in that class.
If in spite of my best packaging skills ,the item gets damaged the most I can offer is store credit on the original price.
We can discuss UPS or FedEx shipping quotes which are more expensive before I ship if you would want to go that way.
Please contact me at the time of purchase if you have specific preferences regarding shipping.I will try to accommodate them.
Thank you for your understanding and for taking the time to read the policies.

Additional policies and FAQs
I like crazed surfaces , I will make a note of items that will develop acre zed pattern with use, "tea staining"
decals are iron based fired and safe to use
gold, platinum and silver accents are metals fired on the pot and they should not be in the microwave. I also recommend hand washing to prevent dulling in time.
